Home-made Piggie Banks! While learning about money in math, our class discussed the difference between saving and spending in Social Studies. Our class made piggy banks to help save money for something special to buy.
Bottle Bank~This little piggy (bank) started off at the market as a bleach bottle. To make one, rinse an empty bottle with hot soapy water; let dry. Cut features such as eyes, ears, and nostrils from construction paper (ears should have tabs). Attach with double-sided tape, as shown. Tape patterned paper around body. Hot-glue empty thread spools on for legs. Cut a slot at the top for coins, and a hole in back to insert a pipe-cleaner tail.
